A loan of $125 helped to buy more tomatoes for the business.

Mable's story

Mable is a hardworking 23-year-old woman living in the town of Nyendo in the Masaka region of Uganda. A single mother of two children, one of whom is in school, Mable has been working diligently to manage her tomato stall, which she has operated for the past three years.

To help expand her business, Mable has requested a loan of 300000 Ugandan Shillings from BRAC Uganda to buy more tomatoes for the business. The additional profits generated will help both in paying her child's school fees and meeting her family's basic needs. She hopes that in the future she will be able to take good care of her children.

Mable is a member of BRAC's Empowerment and Livelihood for Adolescents (ELA) program. In addition to microfinance loans, the program provides both a safe place for young Ugandan women to take part in group activities and a forum for life-skills training.
